VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
VALDOSTA STATE ... PATHWAY TO SUCCESS
Valdosta State University is a premier residential university, characterized by
outstanding instruction, a wide range of student life opportunities, and a close
connection to the community.
OUR HISTORY
Established in 1906, the institution was named the South Georgia State Normal
College when it began providing courses for young ladies in 1913. In 1922, a
legislative act changed the name to Georgia State Womans College and authorized
a four-year program leading to a bachelor’s degree. The Board of Regents made the
college co-educational in 1950 and changed its name to Valdosta State College.
VSC became a regional university within the University System of Georgia on
July 1, 1993 and serves 41 counties in South Georgia.
OUR MISSION
The mission of VSU is to prepare students to meet global opportunities and
challenges through excellence in teaching and learning; to expand the boundaries
of current knowledge, and explore the practical applications of that knowledge,
through excellence in scholarship and creative endeavors; and to promote the
economic, cultural, and educational progress of our community and our region,
through excellence in service outreach. VSU seeks to accomplish this mission
in a dynamic, student-centered learning environment marked by a respect for
diverse abilities, backgrounds, and contributions by all members of the university
community.
OUR CAMPUS
Valdosta State University offers the best of both worlds — the extensive
academic, cultural and social opportunities of a major university, and the small
classes and close personal attention found at smaller institutions. Students are
attracted to the close-knit community where learning occurs in a supportive
environment and faculty members challenge each student’s potential.
Located “among the stately pines” in the heart of beautiful Valdosta, Georgia’s
newest metropolitan area, the university boasts 172 acres, 18 miles north of the
Florida border and equidistant from Atlanta and Orlando, with two picturesque
campuses less than one mile apart.
VSU has a legacy as a major provider of education services for South Georgia.
The beauty and consistency of its Spanish Mission architecture are indicative
of its dedication to serving the region’s heritage while developing programs and
services to enhance its future. The Georgia Association of the American Institute
of Architects has honored VSU for its commitment to quality campus design;
and specifically, for its dedication to preserving the institution’s unique Spanish
Mission style of architecture — a practice that continued during the recent campus
transformation, which featured $150 million in new construction.
With two brand new suite-style residence halls, more students than ever
make their home on campus, which boasts high-quality, brand name dining options
such as The Loop and Starbucks; an impressive campus recreation facility that
facilitates full mind and body wellness; and the Student Union — the “campus
living room,” which houses a movie theatre, food court, ballroom, student offices,
a game room and much more.
The university recently received $2.8 million for planning of a Health Sciences
and Business Administration facility for the Rea & Lillian Steele North Campus. The
strategic location across South Georgia Medical Center will strengthen the existing
partnership between to the two institutions and facilitate new opportunities for
learn, research and growth.
OUR STUDENTS
Represented in VSU’s student body of more than 13,000 are forty-five states,
two U.S. territories and more than 70 countries. Georgians comprise 92 percent
of total enrollment, while Floridians account for 2 percent and International
students another 2 percent. The undergraduate male/female ratio is 1:1.4 with
4,296 undergraduate males and 6,032 undergraduate females.
Self-declared minorities comprise over 28 percent of VSU enrollment numbers.
With a recent $15,000 grant from the Board of Regents of the USG to implement
the HEROES (Helping Everyone Reach Optimum Educational Success) Institute,
VSU seeks to help increase the recruitment, retention and graduation of AfricanAmerican males as part of the USG African-American Male Initiative. AfricanAmerican students account for 24 percent of the student body.
OUR ACADEMIC PROGRAM
Through its five colleges (the College of the Arts, the College of Arts and
Sciences, the Harley Langdale Jr. College of Business Administration, the James
L. and Dorothy H. Dewar College of Education, and the College of Nursing), the
Division of Social Work, and the Library and Information Science program, VSU

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
offers 66 undergraduate degrees (including bachelor’s, associate and certificates)
and 62 graduate degrees (including masters, education specialists, endorsement,
certificates and doctoral degrees).
VSU also strongly supports its distance learning programs, which allow
traditional and non-traditional students, who are limited by both time and location,
to continue their education. In 2009-2010, VSU offered 702 fully online courses,
an increase of 16.6 percent over 2008-2009. Graduate and/or upper-level
undergraduate courses are offered at various locations throughout the region,
including Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta and the Kings Bay Naval Base on the
Georgia coast. Teacher certification and recertification courses are also offered
on a regular basis at many sites.
VSU is one of six University System of Georgia institutions offering the Georgia
WebMBA — ranked among the top 10 programs for its quality and affordable
cost — which offers qualified and highly motivated professionals the opportunity
to earn an accredited online MBA degree with little interruption to their work and
personal lives. It was also the first institution to enroll a student in one of six new
online graduate degrees in education, which were created through collaboration
with several other USG institutions.
Accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools, nationally accredited programs include applied and clinical
sociology, art, athletic training, business, chemistry, communication disorders,
education, library, marriage and family therapy, music, nursing, psychology, public

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
BAZEMORE-HYDER STADIUM
Valdosta State’s home football
field for the last 19 years and for
25 of the Blazers’ 27 years,
Cleveland Field at BazemoreHyder Stadium offers Valdosta
State with a football facility
conveniently located adjacent to
VSU’s main campus.
The original stadium was
built in 1922 and was named for
the late Dr. A.G. Cleveland, who
was superintendent of Valdosta
City Schools from 1919 through
1949. In the spring of 1996,
two legendary coaches from the
Valdosta area were honored when
the complex was named after the
late Wright Bazemore and Nick
Hyder.
The original stadium was
leveled following the 2003 season
and rebuilt, providing the Blazers
with a state-of-the-art facility
for its home games. The seating
capacity of the stadium rose to 10,100, including three prime sections featuring
theater-style seating with the remainder of the stands featuring benches with
seat backs. New SprintTurf was installed on the playing surface while locker
rooms were added to each end of the stadium and a new press box was built
above the main stands.
Valdosta State played its first seven seasons at Cleveland Field, tallying a 2414 record, before returning to the stadium prior to the 1992 season. The Blazers
have dominated since returning to the stadium as they have gone 88-21-1 over
the course of the last 18 seasons, including a 54-10 mark since the beginning of
the 2000 season.

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
THE VALDOSTA STATE ATHLETIC FIELDHOUSE
The new home to the Valdosta State football program is the Valdosta State
Athletic Fieldhouse. The 41,000 square foot Fieldhouse opened in January 2009
at a cost of $5.8 million, giving the Blazer program one of the top athletic facilities
in the nation.
The new Athletic Fieldhouse features many amenities that will aid the football
team as it endures the rigors of a football season. A 3,265 square foot locker
room is the centerpiece of the project and is lined with 126 lockers, enough to
house all members of the VSU football squad. Adjacent to the locker room is a
2,100 square foot equipment room with secure “pass-through” equipment bins
that allow managers to address the equipment needs of all the Blazers while
keeping each player’s equipment separated.
Across the hall from the locker room is the 7,690 square foot Jessie Tuggle
Weight Room. The room, which encases nearly 10 times the space of its
predecessor, is one of, if not the top, weight facilities among NCAA Division II
schools nationwide. It features 10 brand new eight-post stations as well as a
reinforced medicine ball wall. New self-contained dumbbell stations were also
added to the area while a 30-yard speed track was included in the design of the
floor. The Weight Room also features elliptical machines and stationary bikes for
cardio workouts and a built-in microphone/stereo system to aid the strength and
conditioning staff while working with large groups of VSU athletes. Additionally,
each of the 10 eight-post stations has also been pre-wired for video recording,
which will be added in the near future, for further evaluation and instruction by
the strength and conditioning staff.
Next door to the Tuggle Weight Room is a 2,437 square foot state-of-the-art
Athletic Training Room. The area includes offices for the Valdosta State Athletic
Training staff and a private physician exam room as well as a hydrotherapy room
for rehabilitation work. The main Athletic Training area features six taping stations
as well as six additional treatment areas plus a cardiovascular/rehabilitation area
featuring stationary bikes.
The remainder of the Athletic Fieldhouse includes a 3,458 square foot office
suite for the football coaches as well as 2,200 square feet of meeting rooms,
each equipped with state-of-the-art video equipment. The academic needs of the
student-athlete is also addressed as a 1,500 square foot computer lab is equipped
with 19 computers.
The Athletic Fieldhouse also includes a 2,800 square foot suite for the future
addition of soccer at VSU. Additionally, outside of the facility is the space to add
two lighted football practice fields, which are planned for completion in the near
future, as well as a soccer stadium.

2010 BLAZER RECORD BOOK
VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
THE GULF SOUTH CONFERENCE
Academic excellence, 43 National Championships and a leadership role in the
NCAA’s Division II make the Gulf South Conference (GSC) something special. As
a charter member of D-II, the league’s 14 universities in six southeastern states
enters its 41st year of setting the standards nationally, always breaking new
ground.
In the summer of 1970, six college presidents met to talk about athletics;
when the meeting ended, a new league emerged-the Mid-South Conference-started
by, and to this day run by, the CEOs, the first in NCAA history. It is that CEOcontrol and involvement that makes the league work and its 14 championships
(football; men’s & women’s cross country, men’s & women’s soccer; volleyball,
men’s & women’s basketball, men’s & women’s tennis, men’s
& women’s golf; softball and baseball) so bitterly contested in
a collegial manner.
From that point forward, the GSC has been giant steps
ahead of the D-II pack. Dating back to 1997, the league has
found neutral sites paying sizeable guarantees for most of its
team championships. NCAA Conventions regularly feature GSCproposed or inspired legislation. No one wins more regionals
or earns more NCAA post-season bids. In 2004, the league
purchased its own new construction office space. The crowning moment came in 2005-06 when the GSC debuted its highly
successful “GSC-TV Live” package which included nine football games and its
men’s & women’s basketball tournament finals. In 2009, the league became the
first conference at any level to produce its own weekly radio show, “GSC-Radio
Live.” Add to that its web-TV show, “GSC Sports Weekly,” and the broadbanding
of its Volleyball, Basketball, Softball and Baseball championships, and you can
see why the GSC is a Conference paving the way into the 21st century.
We take pride in our 43 National Team Championships in 12 sports and more
than 100 regional titles, especially because there is no sacrifice on the academic
side, where GSC student-athletes regularly earn Academic All-America.
Delta State, Florence State (now North Alabama), Jacksonville State, Livingston (now West Alabama), Tennessee-Martin and Troy State were the charter
members. Scheduling problems for the 1970-71 academic year limited the GSC to
football, won by Jacksonville State. In 1971, the addition of Southeast Louisiana
(SELA) and Nichols State increased the membership to eight. The league opened

NELA left for Division I with SELA and Nicholls State following in 1979.
The conference continued with seven teams until 1981, when the CEOs
admitted Valdosta State, followed by West Georgia (1983). In 1991, TennesseeMartin and Troy State moved to Division I, briefly dropping the GSC back to
seven members. An aggressive expansion under the guidance of new Commissioner Nate Salant resulted in 10 new members: Lincoln Memorial (1992-93);
Alabama-Huntsville, Henderson State, Central Arkansas and Mississippi University
for Women (1993-94); West Florida (1994-95); and ArkansasMonticello, Arkansas Tech, Montevallo and Southern Arkansas
(1995-96). Jacksonville State moved to Division I at the end
of 1992-93. Mississippi College reclassified to Division III at
the end of 1995-96, and was replaced by Christian Brothers
to keep the Conference at 16 schools entering the 1996-97
season.
In July 2000, the GSC welcomed Harding University and
Ouachita Baptist University, making it the largest NCAA
conference at any level with 18 schools. MUW dropped its
athletics program at the end of the 2002-03 season, decreasing
the membership to 17. The Conference dropped to 15 teams in 2006-07 when
Central Arkansas reclassified to Division I and Lincoln Memorial moved to the
South Atlantic Conference. The GSC moved to its current 14-team membership
in 2009-10 when Montevallo joined the Peach Belt Conference.
Former Commissioner Jim McCullough brought the GSC office to Birmingham.
Current Commissioner, Nate Salant began his tenure in October, 1992. He is assisted by Assistant Commissioner for Media and Public Affairs Michael Anderson,
Assistant Sports Information Directors Michael Banks and Albert (A.A.) Moore
and Senior Woman Administrator Andrea Anderson. The Chairman of the GSC
Board of Directors is Dr. William Cale (North Alabama). Joining him on the executive committee are Vice Chair Dr. Judy Bense (West Florida) and past-Chair Dr.
Beheruz Sethna (West Georgia). The Supervisors of Officials are Jeff Roberson

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
DAVID DEAN
Head Coach
3rd year as Head Coach / 10th year at Valdosta State
22-4 Overall Record / 13-3 GSC Record
Georgia State (1986)
Beginning his fourth season as the Valdosta State
head coach, David Dean has quickly shown he knows
what it takes to be successful as the top man of an elite program in the NCAA
Division II’s ranks.
After all, Dean accomplished what very few on any level and in any sport
have ever done in their first year as a coach, leading his Blazer squad to the 2007
NCAA Division II national championship. Along the way, Dean’s Blazers tallied a
13-1 record, including a 7-1 mark in the always tough Gulf South Conference. The
confidence and resolve that Dean instilled in his team helped the Blazers to six
second half come-from-behind victories during the year, including an amazing four
times in four NCAA playoff games. The year culminated with a 25-20 win over
Northwest Missouri State in the national championship game, the school’s second
national title in four seasons. In directing his team to the national championship,
Dean became just the second NCAA Division II coach to win the title in his first
year as a head coach, joining North Dakota State’s Earl Solomonson as the only
coaches to accomplish the feat.
VSU’s success on the year also reached to a personal level as Dean’s tutelage
helped two Blazers – wide receiver Cedric Jones and safety Sherard Reynolds
– earn first team All-America honors. Additionally, seven Blazers were named to
the All-Gulf South Conference squad. Dean also reaped the benefits of his team’s
success as he was named NCAA Division II Coach of the Year by the American
Football Coaches Association, Schutt Sports/American Football Weekly and the
Touchdown Club of Atlanta. One of Dean’s pupils also saw his football career
continue as Maurice Leggett signed a free agent contract with the Kansas City
Chiefs. Leggett, who was a standout on Dean’s special teams units all four years
he wore a Blazer uniform, went on to earn NFL Special Teams Player of the Week
honors on one occasion during his rookie season with the Chiefs and was named
the Kansas City Rookie of the Year at the conclusion of the 2008 season.
Valdosta State ranked among the nation’s leaders in both offense and defense
throughout Dean’s first season, finishing the season ranked among the top 40 in
the nation in an amazing 17 of the 23 categories in which the NCAA ranks the
144 Division II squads, a testament not only to the caliber of players on Dean’s
squad, but also to the ability of his coaching staff to teach the game of football.
The Blazers led the nation in passes intercepted, finishing with 27, while standing
second in turnovers gained, fourth in punt return defense, fifth in turnover margin
and 10th in net punting.
In addition to his duties as head coach, Dean also served as the team’s
offensive coordinator during his first season. The results were typical of his time
in Valdosta as Valdosta State finished 14th in the nation in scoring offense while
standing 35th in total offense and 39th in passing offense.
After losing 14 starters and 23 letterwinners off of his first squad, Dean
faced the unenviable task of having to rebuild the VSU team to the high standards
that Blazer fans have come to expect. Dean proved he was up for the task as he
led Valdosta State to its second playoff appearance in as many years in 2008.
His squad tallied a 9-3 overall record and a 6-2 mark in Gulf South Conference
action while advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Individual honors again rolled in after Dean’s second year at the helm of the
Blazers as he six Blazers earned All-Gulf South Conference honors, including
Sherard Reynolds and Demario Jones on the first team as well as Larry Dean,
Albert Dukes, Joey Farmer and Jack Fulford on the second team. Additionally,
quarterback Chris Hart became just the third Valdosta State offensive player
to earn GSC Freshman of the Year honors as he finished fourth in the league in
total offense despite splitting time with senior Tucker Pruitt during the year.
12
Additionally, Reynolds was a consensus choice to the various All-Region teams
and was joined by on the Football Gazette All-Region squad by Jones. Reynolds
rounded out the individual honors by earning first team All-America honors for
the third straight season, just the second Blazer to do so.
The Valdosta State losses from 2007 to 2008 hit Dean’s specialty particularly
hard as eight of the 14 starters lost between the two seasons came on the offense
side of the ball. Regardless of the losses, Dean led the offense to a 48th finish
nationally in total offense as Valdosta State averaged 380.8 yards per game
on the season. The passing game continued to be among the nation’s best as it
ranked 44th nationally with a 134.52 efficiency rating and 36th in passing yards
per game, at 245.8 an outing.
Dean saw another 13 starters and 35 letterwinners leave his team following
his second season, bringing about new challenges for the third year head coach.
Dean faced the challenge of welcoming six new startes on offense and seven on
defense and saw the season start with promise before injuries forced four more
starters, and seven players overall, into season-ending surgeries. The lack of
depth took its toll on the team, but Dean’s will and determination led the squad
to a 6-4 record and a third-place showing in teh Gulf South Conference with a
record of 5-3.
Personal honrs continued to roll in during the trying third season as five Blazers
earned All-GSC honors at the conclusion of the year. Meanwhile, wide receiver
Gerald Ford became just the fourth VSU player, and the second under Dean, to
earn GSC Freshman of the Year honors while senior wide receiver Cedric Jones,
who earned first team All-GSC for the third time in his career, became the league’s
all-time leader in receptions. Jones, senior cornerback Carlos Anderson and junior
linebacker Larry Dean also all earned All-Region honors at the conclusion of the
season.
Dean, 46, became the eighth man to assume the title of head coach at Valdosta
State in the program’s 26 year history on January 19, 2007. He brought a wealth
of knowledge to his new position as he had spent 19 years in the collegiate
coaching ranks, including the role of Valdosta State’s offensive coordinator from
2000 through 2006.
Dean made an immediate impact on the Blazer football squad during his initial
2010 BLAZER RECORD BOOK
VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
season in Valdosta in 2000 as VSU led the nation in both total offense, at 502.4
yards per game, and in passing offense (377.9) while finishing third in scoring
offense, scoring 45.5 points per game. Dusty Bonner was named the Harlon Hill
Trophy winner and was one of two VSU offensive players to earn All-America
honors. The Blazers capitalized on the offensive success, tallying a 10-2 record
while advancing to the second NCAA Regional appearance in school history.
Valdosta State again advanced to the NCAA Regionals in 2001 while finishing
fifth in the nation in total offense, with 506.4 yards per game. The Blazer passing
game, once again led by Harlon Hill winner Dusty Bonner, ranked sixth nationally
at 321.2 yards a game, while VSU averaged 49.4 points an outing, second-best
in the nation. Five Blazers on the offensive side of the ball earned All-America
honors after the season.
Dean was once again instrumental in the Blazers’ success in 2002 as he helped
the team reach its first ever National Championship game. That squad rolled to
a 14-1 record during the season, its only blemish a 31-24 defeat at the hands
of Grand Valley State in the final game of the season. The offense continued to
flourish, tallying 398.5 yards a game, good enough for 32nd-best in the nation.
With Bonner gone to graduation, Dean groomed current VSU quarterbacks coach
Buster Faulkner into an All-Gulf South Conference quarterback while running back
Aaron Jenkins earned the school’s third straight GSC Offensive Player-of-the-Year
honor. Valdosta State was 11th nationally in passing that season, throwing for
277.5 yards a game, and 16th in scoring, at 33.3 points per outing.
The VSU offense ranked 44th nationally in total offense, 14th in passing
offense and 31st in scoring offense in 2003 while accumulating a 10-2 mark
and its fourth straight trip to the NCAA postseason before reaching its ultimate
goal in 2004. That season, Dean helped the squad win the school’s first football
national championship as he led a unit that was 33rd nationally in total offense
at 415.8 yards a game. VSU was 38th nationally in rushing offense that season
and 46th in passing offense while finishing the season 26th in scoring offense.
VSU’s kickoff and punt return units, both of which Dean oversaw, also finished
in the top 60 in the nation during the season as Valdosta State rolled off 14
straight victories after dropping the season opener.
The Valdosta State passing offense again ranked among the top in the nation
under Dean during the 2005 season, standing 14th at 275.6 yards a game, as
well as in scoring (49th / 28.2). The 2006 team returned to the top 20 in total
offense, standing 20th at 389.8 yards per game while ranking 89th in rushing,
sixth in passing and ninth in scoring. Additionally, the punt return team ranked
second in the nation under Dean’s direction, tallying 17.3 yards per return.
Overall, 14 Valdosta State offensive players earned All-America honors
during Dean’s seven seasons as the Blazers’ offensive coordinator while 25
times a VSU offensive player was named to the All-Gulf South Conference team,
including current wide receiver Cedric Jones, who earned GSC Freshman-ofthe-Year in 2006. Additionally, the Blazers set 21 single season team offensive
records during Dean’s time as offensive coordinator while the special teams unit
established five new school records. The Blazers won four Gulf South Conference
championships during his tenure as offensive coordinator, tallied a 56-6 league
record and advanced to six NCAA postseasons during that span.
Dean’s success at grooming offensive players began prior to his arrival at
Valdosta State. Prior to his VSU tenure, Dean also served eight years as an
assistant coach at West Georgia, the last two of which was spent as the Wolves’
offensive coordinator. He joined West Georgia in 1992 as the squad’s running
backs coach before adding the title of special team’s coordinator in 1993. Prior
to the 1998 season Dean took over the school’s offensive coordinator position
as well as the quarterback coaching job. Wolves quarterback Jeremy Clements
was named the Gulf South Conference Offensive Player-of-the-Year during Dean’s
initial season as offensive coordinator, giving the coach four honorees in the
five-year stretch from 1998-2002. West Georgia accumulated an 18-5 record
during Dean’s two seasons as offensive coordinator, including an 8-1 mark and
a GSC championship in 1999. Overall, West Georgia compiled a 59-28 record,

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
JOE CAUTHEN
Defensive Coordinator / Linebackers Coach
4th year at Valdosta State
Stephen F. Austin (1990)
Hailed as one of the top rising coaches on the
defensive side of the ball, Joe Cauthen has re-enforced
that perception during his first three years as defensive
coordinator and linebackers coach with Valdosta State.
After all, Cauthen directed a unit that finished 14th in the nation in scoring
defense, as the Blazers surrendered 17.6 points per game in 2007, while VSU
won its second national title. Cauthen’s knowledge of the defensive side of the
ball was no more evident than in the 2007 NCAA Championship game, where
his scheme held Northwest Missouri State running back Xavier Omon, who had
averaged 236 yards a game in three previous playoff contests, to just 63 yards on
27 carries, an average of 2.3 yards per carry. In fact, all ball carriers have found
the going tough against Valdosta State since Cauthen’s arrival, as the Blazers
have allowed a 100-yard rushing performance just one time in his 26 games as
the leader of the Blazer defense.
Under Cauthen’s tutelage, the Blazer defense ranked among the best in the
nation in nearly every category, finishing in the Top 40, out of 144 total teams,
in six of the seven categories that the NCAA ranks on an annual basis. Cauthen’s
aggressive, ball-hawking defensive approach helped VSU lead the nation in passes
intercepted with 27 on the season while finishing second in turnovers gained with
40. Additionally, Valdosta State was 25th in passing efficiency defense (105.9)
and 33rd in rushing defense (120.9 yards per game). Meanwhile, the Blazers
just missed finishing in the top 40 in total defense as they claimed 45th after
surrendering just 326.4 yards per game in their 14 contests.
Cauthen’s defense was just as impressive during the 2008 season as it finished
31st nationally in total defense and 24th in scoring defense. The Blazers allowed
opponents just 304.6 yards per game during his second season with the school
while surrendering just 18.6 points per outing. On the rushing side, the Blazers
only allowed 108.3 yards per game to rank 31st in the nation while opponents
found throwing the ball even tougher as they were held to a 104.91 efficiency
rating, a number that ranked VSU 20th nationally.
Despite losing seven starters off the 2008 squad and seeing two more suffer
season-ending injuries over the course of the first three games of 2009, Cauthen
molded another dominating group in his third season as the Blazers allowed just
18.6 points and 304.6 yards per game. Cauthen’s defense was particularly stingy
against the run during the season as it allowed just 112.9 yards per game on the
ground, the sixth lowest total in school history.
Cauthen’s ability to teach the game of football has helped several Blazers earn
individual honors during his two years as two defensive players - safety Sherard
Reynolds, who accomplished the feat in 2007 and 2008, and linebacker William
Montford (2007) - have garnered All-America honors while three more - defensive
tackle Demario Jones (2008), linebacker Larry Dean (2009) and cornerback Carlos
Anderson (2009) - have named All-Region. Additionally, defensive end Travis
Harrison (2007), Jones (2008), cornerback Maurice Leggett (2007), Dean (2008
and 2009), Anderson (2009), Montford (2007) and Reynolds (2007 and 2008)
have all been named to the All-Gulf South Conference team. Cauthen’s tutelage
also helped Reynolds earn GSC All-Decade Team honors after the 2009 season,
the only VSU defensive player to earn first team honors on that list.
Cauthen joined the Blazers after eight seasons with Texas A&M-Commerce,
during which the Lions consistently ranked among the top defenses in the nation.
A&M-Commerce led the Lone Star Conference and was ranked 23rd nationally
in total defense in 2006 as the Lions compiled a 5-5 mark. Cauthen’s defense
surrendered just 258.3 yards per game, including 95.3 on the ground and 163.0
through the air. The Lions allowed just 15.1 points per game, 19th-best nationally,
and were 24th in rushing defense.
The Lions were equally as impressive in 2005 as they again led the Lone
Star Conference in total defense (318.9 yards a game), rushing defense (127.4
yards per game) and scoring defense (18.3 points an outing). A&M-Commerce
was 47th nationally in total defense and 42nd in rushing defense while finishing
22nd in scoring defense. Additionally, under Cauthen’s tutelage, Lion linebacker
J.D. Hearn led the nation in tackles in 2005 and earned eight national post-season
awards.
During his seven seasons with the Lions, Cauthen coached six All-Americans,
four Lone Star Conference linebackers of the year, three defensive lineman of the
year, a defensive back of the year and 34 defensive players that earned All-Lone
Star Conference at least once during their career.
Cauthen spent little time in establishing his mark on the Texas A&M-Commerce
defense as in just his third year he directed a defense that ranked second in the
league in total defense, first against the run, second against the pass and third
in scoring defense. Two years later, his 2003 defense was fourth in the 15-team
league in 41st nationally in total defense.
Cauthen joined the Lion staff in 1999 after two seasons at I-AA Stephen
F. Austin. He began his tenure with SFA as a restricted earnings coach in 1997
before becoming full-time in 1998. He worked with the defensive line during his
two seasons and aided the Lumberjacks to an 11-11 overall record. Cauthen’s
line was instrumental in Stephen F. Austin finishing the 1997 season ranked 21st
in the nation in the final national poll.
Prior to Stephen F. Austin, Cauthen spent a season as defensive line coach
at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas. He also worked with the
special teams unit at TVCC and served as the school’s strength and conditioning
coach. He began his coaching career at Sherman High School in Sherman, Texas
during the 1990 season and worked with the school for five seasons. In addition
to teaching biology for the school, Cauthen worked with the freshman team his
first year and as an assistant for the varsity squad from 1992 through 1995.
Additionally, he served as an assistant for the school’s baseball, power lifting and
basketball programs. Cauthen’s coaching was instrumental in leading both Trinity
Valley and Sherman to post-season berths during his time with the schools.
Cauthen earned his Bachelor’s in Health and Kinesiology with a minor in
Biology from Stephen F. Austin in 1990. He also obtained a Master’s in Sports
Administration from the University of Texas-Tyler in 1997.
Cauthen is married to the former Karen Belson of Houston, Texas. The couple
has three children, Brooklyn (16), Dakota (12) and Jackson (11).

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
ROBBY BROWN
Offensive Coordinator / Quarterbacks Coach
2nd year at Valdosta State
Georgia Tech (1990)
Having just completed his first year as the quarterbacks
coach and offensive coordinator for Valdosta State, Robby
Brown wasted little time in proving to the Blazer faithful
while he is considered one of the up and coming offensive minds in the game of
football.
Brown’s leadership on the offensive side of the ball was evidenced by the
fact that VSU averaged 380.8 yards per game during his initial season, its most
since averaging a school-record 510.3 yards per outing during the 2001 season.
In fact, the 418.4 yards per game, which ranked 25th nationally on the year,
was the seventh-best total in school history. The Blazers also ranked among the
national leaders in passing yards, finishing 12th with 286.4 yards per game, the
seventh-highest total in the history of the program. Not all of the success came
through the air as Valdosta State rushed for 23 touchdowns on the year, the
fifth-most in school history.
The accolades didn’t stop on a team level as Brown also assisted quarterback
Kellen Lewis to one of the best seasons ever by a Blazer signal caller. Lewis
completed 232-of-372 passes on the season, a 62.4 completion rate, for 2,514
yards and 14 touchdowns. Lewis also rushed for a team-high 485 yards and nine
scores while starting all 10 games on the season. As a group, Brown helped the
Valdosta State quarterbacks to a 125.88 efficiency rating as the group completed
258-of-420 passes, or 61.4 percent of their attempts, for 2,864 yards and 17
touchdowns.
A pair of Brown’s charges earned conference and national recognition during
his initial season in the Red and Black, led by wide receiver Cedric Jones, who
was first team All-Gulf South Conference while also earning All-Region honors.
Jones became the GSC’s all-time leader in career receptions during the season
while finishing third in receiving yardage. Meanwhile, fellow wide receiver Gerald
Ford was named second-team All-GSC and became just the fourth Blazer to earn
conference Freshman of the Year honors.
Brown joined VSU after spending one season as the offensive coordinator at
GSC-member Henderson State, where he led the Reddie offense to record-breaking
numbers during the 2008 season. Twelve school records were set during Brown’s
one season with the school, including points per game and yards per game as the
Reddies averaged 32.8 points and 448.1 yards per outing. The team finished the
year ranked 18th nationally in total yards per game and third in passing yards,
tallying 330.1 yards a game through the air.
Brown’s ability to teach the game was evidenced in individual achievements
as well as team success as he aided wide receiver Garret Manning in earning AllAmerica honors. Manning finished the year ranked second nationally in receiving
yards at 120.9 yards per contest while pulling in 76 receptions, including 10 for
touchdowns, on the year. Additionally, Manning and fellow receiver Greg Godfrey,
who caught 48 passes for 584 yards and six touchdowns, each received All-Gulf
South Conference honors at the conclusion of the season. Quarterback Roch
Charpentier also benefited from Brown’s tutelage as he finished the year ranked
sixth nationally in passing yards a game, as he averaged 315.6 yards a contest,
and ninth in total offense, with 3,235 yards on the year.
Brown joined Henderson State after one season as the offensive coordinator
at Southwest Baptist University. While at Southwest Baptist, the Blairsville, Ga.
native led the school to 29 school records, six Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic
Conference marks and two national records. The Bearcats averaged 390.3 yards
per game during Brown’s one year with the club, including 317.0 through the air.
Brown’s offensive philosophy helped SBU’s Nick Smart set an NCAA all-divisions
record with 143 receptions during the season while three additional receivers each
tallied at least 44 catches apiece. Quarterback Steven Gachette completed 61.2
16
of his passes on the season while passing for 2,953 yards and 15 touchdowns
on the year.
Prior to Southwest Baptist, Brown learned the spread offense under Larry
Blakeney at Division I Troy University, where he spent two seasons as a graduate
assistant. Brown, who worked with the Trojan quarterbacks and wide receivers,
helped Troy to the 2006 Sun Belt Conference championship and a spot in the
R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, where it defeated Rice 41-17.
Brown received a Masters in Sports Management from Troy in 2008 after
earning a Bachelor’s degree in History from Georgia Tech in 2004. Brown was a
member of the Yellow Jacket football team during his days and played on a pair
of bowl winning squads.
Brown, 27, is married the former Rachel Jones of Sumter, S.C.
2010 BLAZER RECORD BOOK
VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
DAVID ELSENRATH
Assistant Head Coach / Offensive Line
4th year at Valdosta State
Missouri-Rolla (1985)
Now in his second tour of duty with the Valdosta
State football program, David Elsenrath, who serves as the
Blazers’ offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator, is
no stranger to the demands of involved with a winning collegiate football program.
After all, Elsenrath has spent more than 29 years in the collegiate ranks, both as
a player and coach.
Elsenrath has been instrumental in the development of the Blazer offensive
line over the last three seasons as he has guided the unit to two of its best
showings in recent memory. His 2007 offensive line was instrumental in the
Blazers establishing numerous school records en route to the school’s second
national championship. The line was successful in all facets as it aided the rushing
attack to 2,360 yards while surrendering just 20 sacks on the year, the fewest
since also allowing 20 during the 2001 season. Elsenrath’s teaching ability was
also evident on the individual level as tackle Gerald Davis earned All-Gulf South
Conference honors after the season before signing with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats
of the Canadian Football League.
Elsenrath’s teaching ability was even more evident in 2008 as four starters
departed off of the previous year’s squad. Under his direction, the revamped line
steadily improved throughout the season, finishing the year having allowed just
24 sacks on the year while helping the Blazers average 380.8 yards and 28.3
points per game.
Elsenrath once again had the unenviable task of replacing four departed
starters in 2009, and once again proved why Blazer head coach David Dean
tabbed him the man to lead the offensive line prior to the 2007 season. His
squad surrendered just 22 sacks on the year and was instrumental in allowing the
Blazers to tally 418.4 yards per game on the year, its highest total since 2001.
Elsenrath’s ability to teach the game helped the Blazers excel both in pass and
rushing blocking as, outside of the 22 sacks, VSU rushed for 23 touchdowns,
the fifth-most in school history.
Elsenrath joined the Valdosta State staff after spending the last seven seasons
at Tusculum, including the last two years as offensive coordinator. The Missouri
native also worked as the quarterbacks and tight ends coach the last two seasons,
during which the Pioneers tallied a cumulative record of 9-12. Overall, Tusculum was
46-28 with Elsenrath on the coaching staff, including a 26-23 mark in the SAC.
Elsenrath also spent five seasons as Tusculum’s offensive line coach, a position
he assumed upon joining the school in the spring of 2000 and held through the end
of the 2004 season. He worked with six All-South Atlantic Conference honorees,
including two All-Americans as offensive line coach. He coached former Pioneer
Alan Dunn to back-to-back Jacobs Blocking Trophies, given annually to the top line
man in the SAC, and the 2003 Jim Langer Award, an honor bestowed upon NCAA
Division II’s Offensive Lineman of the Year. Both Dunn and former Pioneer Felix Perez
earned All-America honors under Elsenrath’s tutelage while Dunn, Doug Holmberg,
Mario Leon and Bull Brown earned invitations to postseason All-Star games.
Prior to Tusculum, Elsenrath spent three seasons as the head football coach
at Adams State College in Alamosa, Colo. He led the Grizzlies to the most Rocky
Mountain Athletic Conference victories in school history and had two players
named All-America. Additionally, three ASC players earned Academic All-America
honors and 14 times a Grizzly was named to the RMAC All-Conference team.
Twice in his three seasons a football player was named Adams State’s Male
Academic Student-Athlete of the Year.
The Grizzlies were 9-22 during Elsenrath’s three seasons with the school,
including an 8-16 mark in RMAC play. He improved the school from a 1-10 overall
record his first season to a 4-6 mark the final two years. Likewise, the Grizzlies
improved from 1-7 in the conference play his first year to 3-5 and finally 4-4 his
final season.
Before taking over at Adams State, Elsenrath served three years as tight
ends coach at Division I Eastern Kentucky. While at the Richmond, Ky. school,
Elsenrath helped the school to a 25-11 record, including a 21-3 mark in Ohio
Valley Conference play. The Colonels won the 1994 OVC title with a perfect 8-0
record and advanced to both the 1994 and 1995 NCAA Division I-AA playoffs.
Elsenrath wrapped a pair of graduate assistant jobs on the staffs of legendary
coaches around his first job with the Blazers. He spent the 1992 and 1993 seasons
as a graduate assistant coach for Howard Schnellenberger at Louisville, working
with the offensive line while helping the team win the 1993 Liberty Bowl and also
served two seasons on Pay Dye’s staff at Auburn, where he worked as a defensive
line coach for a team that played in the 1986 Citrus Bowl while working with
the offensive line on the 1987 SEC Championship and Sugar Bowl participating
team.
Elsenrath’s first stint on the Blazer coaching staff stretched from 1988
through 1992 as he served as an assistant on Mike Cavan’s staff. He worked
with the tight ends and as an assistant offensive line coach his first two seasons
before taking over the head offensive line coaching duties in 1990. He also served
as the Blazers’ recruiting coordinator all four seasons.
As a player, Elsenrath lettered at Missouri-Rolla. He graduated Cum Laude
from the school with a Bachelor’s degree in Life Sciences in 1985 and earned

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
EARL CHAMBERS
Defensive Line / Director of Football Operations
6th year at Valdosta State
Georgia (1999)
The longest tenured assistant on the Valdosta
State staff, Earl chambers enters his sixth season as the
defensive line coach for the Blazers.
Chambers immediately made his mark on Valdosta State in 2005 as he aided
both defensive ends on the squad to All-Gulf South Conference seasons. Under his
tutelage, Tim Thompson earned first team All-GSC honors while Dedrick Morrison
was tabbed to the league’s second team. Likewise, Chambers coached Travis
Harrison to an All-GSC first team spot in 2006 and was integral in the Blazer
defense setting a school record for fewest points and total yards allowed. He also
with a season-ending injury in just the third game of the year, Chambers again
crafted a solid group in 2009 that helped the Blazers hold opponents to just 112.9
rushing yards per game, the sixth lowest total in school history. Despite the loss
of their leader Jones, Chambers’ linemen accounted for 29.5 of Valdosta State’s
68 tackles for loss on the season and accounted for more than half of the team’s
18 sacks, finishing with 9.5 on the year.
Chambers, 34, joined the Valdosta State staff from the University of Georgia,
where he spent five years as a graduate assistant. Chambers spent his first year
on the Bulldog staff as a recruiting assistant, helping to evaluate position recruits
as well as coordinating official visits. His final four seasons, Chambers served as
an assistant with the UGA defensive staff and as video coordinator. His defensive
duties involved Chambers with the defensive line and allowed him to coach the
team’s offensive and special teams scout players. He also worked as an academic
mentor, assisting the Bulldogs as they worked towards their college degrees.
Georgia was 50-14 during Chambers’ five seasons on the coaching staff and made
bowl appearances all five years. The Bulldogs won the Southeastern Conference in
2002 and were the Sugar Bowl Champions that year while winning the SEC East
title in 2003. UGA won the O’Ahu Bowl his first season, the Capital One Bowl in
2003 and the Outback Bowl in his final year while appearing in the Music City Bowl
in 2001. He coached three NFL first round draft picks in his five seasons with the
school, including Jonathan Sullivan, Charles Grant and David Pollack.
Chambers’ five years on the coaching staff at Georgia completed a 10-year run
with the program, which also saw him star at strong safety from 1995 through
1999, including a red-shirt year in 1996. He registered 41 tackles and four pass
breakups his senior season and aided the Bulldogs to an Outback Bowl title that
year. Overall, UGA was 33-11 in his four years of action, including a 3-1 mark in
bowl games.
In addition to his playing duties, Chambers served on the SEC Council, UGA
Athletic Board and the Faculty Committee during the 1996-97 school year. He
also served two years on Georgia’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee during his
undergraduate years. Chambers graduated from UGA with a degree in psychology
in 1999 and is currently working on his Master’s in Sport Management.
Chambers was a standout athlete in high school, lettering in four sports and
starting at both quarterback and defensive back for Banneker High School. He
was named honorable mention All-State by both the Associated Press and by the
Atlanta Journal Constitution as a senior.
A member of the American Football Coaches Assocation, Chambers is married
to the former Tonya Bell of Cuba, Alabama and is the father of three children,
Eariona, 16, and Jordan, 4 and Evelyn, 19 months.
served as Valdosta State’s recruiting coordinator during his first two seasons and
was instrumental in recruiting 2006 GSC Freshman of the Year Cedric Jones.
Chambers’ experience and ability to teach the game of football was once again
evident in 2007 as his unit was instrumental in the Blazers winning the Division
II national championship. His teaching helped Harrison earn second-team All-GSC
honors during the year while the defensive line accounted for 23.5 of VSU’s 38
sacks on the year while totaling 53 tackles for loss. Under Chambers’ guidance,
the young group, which featured eight freshman and two sophomore out of the 16
players to see time on the defensive line during the season, improved considerably
over the course of the season and was instrumental in holding Northwest Missouri
State’s Xavier Omon, who was averaging 236 yards a game in the playoffs, to
just 63 yards in the national title game.
The 2008 season again saw Chambers work his magic with the defensive line
as he directed a group that accounted for 39 of the Blazers 82 tackles for loss
and 17.0 of VSU’s 23.0 sacks. The individual accolades continued to roll in for
Chambers’ players as Demario Jones earned first team All-Gulf South Conference
honors as well as All-South Region recognition at the end of the season.
Despite losing three starters off of his 2009 team and seeing Jones go down

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
SETH WALLACE
Secondary / Special Teams
2nd year at Valdosta State
Coe College (2001)
Entering his second season with Valdosta State,
Seth Wallace looks to continue the success of perhaps
the most productive unit of the Blazer defense over the
past several years.
Wallace faced the unenviable task of replacing three of the four starters
among his group during his initial season in 2009. Aided by the experience of
senior Carlos Anderson, who Wallace coached to All-Region and All-Gulf South
Conference honors during the season, the Blazer secondary showed real promise
during his first year as the group recorded five interceptions while breaking up
18 passes on the season. Wallace’s ability to teach the game was prominent as
a pair of freshmen opened the year as starters, with true freshman Matt Pierce
eventually starting all 10 games at free safety while red-shirt freshman Alex
Webster started three games before battling injuries the rest of the season. The
young duo proved Wallace’s faith in them as they accounted for 53 tackles on
the year.
Wallace is no stranger to the sport of football on the collegiate level, where
he has spent nearly half of his 30 years. He has spent the last eight seasons
coaching with one successful team after another on the NCAA Division I and
III ranks after spending the previous four as an All-Conference wide receiver at
Division III’s Coe College. The varied experience has given Wallace a wide range
of knowledge in how to win in all aspects of being a NCAA student-athlete.
For the last three years, Wallace has served as a defensive graduate assistant
with the Big Ten’s Iowa Hawkeyes. Wallace worked primarily with the Hawkeye
secondary during his three year stay in Iowa City, helping direct a squad that led
the Big Ten in turnover margin and red zone defense in 2007 while finishing first
in scoring defense and interceptions as well as second in total defense in 2008.
Seven times a player was named All-Big Ten under Wallace’s watch, including
Charles Godfrey who earned All-America honors in 2008. The Hawkeyes won
the 2009 Outback Bowl and also participated in the 2006 Alamo Bowl during
his three years with the school.
Wallace’s tutelage wasn’t just limited to the defensive side of the ball as he
also assisted with the Hawkeye special teams units. He worked closely with the
punt return defense, a unit that led the nation in 2006, fifth in 2008 and 20th
in 2007. His kickoff return squad was 10th nationally in 2007 while the Iowa
defense was fourth nationally in interceptions during his final season.
Prior to Iowa, Wallace spent three seasons at Division III’s Lake Forest College,
the first working with the defensive secondary and serving as the special teams
coordinator before taking over as the offensive coordinator for the 2004 and
2005 seasons. The Foresters compiled a 19-11 record during his three seasons
with the Illinois school, including a school record eight victories during his first
season directing the team’s offense. Overall, Lake Forest went 12-8 with Wallace
as its offensive coordinator while establishing nine school records, including total
offense and passing offense, while posting the third highest scoring total in school
history. Nine of his players earned all-conference honors during the two year span
while four were recognized as Academic All-Conference.
Wallace arrived at Lake Forest in 2003 as the school’s defensive secondary
coach and special teams coordinator. The school posted a 7-3 record that season
and two of the team’s defensive backs earned All-Midwest Conference honors, a
recognition also garnered by the squad’s punter. The Foresters led the Midwest
Conference in scoring defense, passing defense and total defense in 2003 and
its 18 interceptions on the season ranked as the third-most in school history.
Wallace also served as the LFC recruiting coordinator all three seasons with the
school.
Wallace began his coaching career at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He
worked with the team’s wide receivers and tight ends while also serving as a
special teams assistant both seasons with the Kohawks, helping the school to
a 16-6 record in his two seasons. CC won the Iowa Conference title in his final
year with the school in 2002 and advanced to the quarterfinal round of the NCAA
Division III playoffs. The Kohawks led the IIAC in total offense, punt returns and
kickoff returns during the year, after also finishing first in passing offense and
kickoff returns in 2001.
As a player at Coe, Wallace was a four-year starter at wide receiver while also
serving as one of the school’s return specialists. He earned All-Conference honors
in both 1999 and 2000 and led the nation as a punter returner as a freshman
in 1997, when he averaged 30.1 yards per return, the third-highest average in
NCAA Division III history. Wallace ranked 26th in the Division III ranks in receiving
yards in 2000 and finished his career among the top three in Coe College history
in receiving yards in a game, season and career.
Wallace played his prep career at Grinnell High School, where he earned AllState honors at running back as a senior in 1996. He helped his school advance
to the Iowa Class 3A state quarterfinals in his final year and participated in the
Iowa High School Shrine Bowl following the season.
The son of Grinnell College athletic director and former head football coach
Greg Wallace, Wallace is a member of the American Football Coaches Association.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Coe in 2001 and
completed a Master’s in Sports Management from Iowa in December of 2008.
Wallace is a native of Danville, Ky. and is married to the former Erica Severson
of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
TYLER AURANDT
Wide Receivers
3rd year at Valdosta State
Valdosta State (2007)
Now in his third year as Valdosta State’s wide
receiver coach, Tyler Aurandt is fully aware of the
rigors involved with playing on one of NCAA Division II’s
premiere football programs.
After all, Aurandt is now in his eighth year overall with the Blazer program
after serving as a receiver for four years on the VSU squad. The Atlanta, Ga.
native saw action in 31 games during his four seasons in the Red and Black,
during which he caught 86 passes. Aurandt tallied one touchdown and 718 yards
during his Blazer career and enjoyed
his best season as a senior in 2006
when he was second on the team
with 43 receptions. He enjoyed a
career game against West Alabama
that season, when he hauled in 13
catches for 123 yards. Aurandt’s
career highlights also included a pair
of receptions in the Blazers 2004
national championship game victory
over Pittsburg State.
Aurandt easily transitioned
into coaching the next season when
he served as an offensive assistant
on David Dean’s first coaching staff.
He worked primarily with the wide
receivers during the Blazers’ 2007
national championship season and
was instrumental in Cedric Jones being named All-America at the end of the
season. Aurandt’s ability to teach the game of football and the position of wide
receiver was quickly proven as he worked with a group of receivers that featured
six newcomers. The group excelled under his leadership, catching 276 passes for
2,981 yards and 27 touchdowns during the year.
The 2008 season saw Aurandt again serve as the leader of the receiving corps,
and again he showed his ability to teach the game as his position saw seven new
players join the VSU ranks prior to the season. Aurandt’s tutelage helped Albert
20
Dukes earn All-Gulf South Conference honors during the season as the first year
player caught 41 passes and eight touchdowns. Over all, the group accounted
for 201 receptions and 2,555 yards as well as 24 touchdowns on the season.
Aurandt continued his work with the Valdosta State receivers in 2009, his
second full season as a graduate assistant for the Blazers, and led his charges
to great success during the season. Jones earned first team All-GSC as well as
All-Region honors for the second time in three years under Aurandt’s guidance
while also becoming the Gulf South Conference’s all-time leader in receptions.
Meanwhile, Gerald Ford was named second team All-GSC and was named the
GSC’s Offensive Freshman of the Year, joining Jones as the only Valdosta State
receivers to earn that honor. The two All-GSC honorees marked the first time that
VSU had recorded a pair of All-GSC receivers in a single season since tight end
C.J. Lofton and receiver Reggie Mosley both earned first team honors in 2002.
The Blazer receiving corps has showed steady improvement during Aurandt’s
two years with the school as seven different receivers caught at least 23 passes
during the 2009 season Aurandt while nine caught scoring strikes, up from five
and seven, respectively, from the year before.
Aurandt played his prep career at Greater Atlanta Christian. He received
a Bachelor’s of Business Administration with a double major in Finance and
Accounting, which he earned from VSU in 2007. He also earned a Master’s in
Public Administration from the University in 2009.

MICHAEL DOSCHER
Head Strength and Conditioning Coach
15th year at Valdosta State
Springfield (1992)
The Blazer football off-season program provides
a great opportunity for players to make progress in many
athletic areas. The primary goal is to develop foot speed
and quickness, along with focusing on explosive power, which is achieved through
weight training four days a week.
Strength gains have been impressive across the board, and what the young
Blazers have accomplished under the watchful eye of speed/strength and
conditioning coach Michael Doscher in the weight room and on the practice field
will stand them in good stead when they report for fall practice in August. Doscher
is assisted by a pair of graduate assistants in Kevin Doak and Bobby Stiner.
Doscher, who is widely recognized as one of the best strength and conditioning
coaches in the United States, is
a key player in the total athletic
program, and nobody is more aware
of his value than Dean and the
rest of the football staff. Under
Doscher’s guidance in the weight
room, the Blazers have twice won
the NCAA Division II national title.
He has been honored for his work on
several occasions, including in 2005
when he was named the national
College Strength and Conditioning
Professional-of-the-Year by the
National Strength and Conditioning
Assocation. He followed that by
being named the Samson NCAA
Division II Strength and Conditioning
Coach-of-the-Year by American
Football Weekly in 2007. Doscher was also chosen to speak by the National
Strength and Conditioning Assocation in China on assessing and testing athletes
in each of the last two years..
Doscher’s work in the field of strength and conditioning was further
recognized in May 2009 when he was presented with the certification of Master
Strength and Conditioning Coach. One of only 90 individuals to ever reach this
level of certification, Doscher earned the honor after displaying high levels of
professionalism, knowledge, experience, expertise and longevity in the field of
strength and conditioning.
Doscher plies his trade in the Jessie Tuggle Strength and Fitness Complex,
an important part of the total athletic program at Valdosta State, but one that
is especially critical to the football program. The Tuggle Strength and Fitness
Complex took on a new look in 2009 when Doscher moved his department into a
7,690 square foot room in the VSU Athletic Fieldhouse. One of the largest weight
rooms in the NCAA Division II levels, the new room was outfitted with state-ofthe art strength and conditioning equipment, including 10 eight-post stations, a
medicine ball wall and self-contained dumbbell systems, as well as a 100 foot
long speed track. The weight room also is wired with a stereo/microphone system,
to assist Doscher when working with large groups of Valdosta State athletes.
Likewise, each of the 10 eight-post systems has been pre-wired for the addition
of video recording equipment, which will be added in the near future, to help in
the assessment of each individual’s workout.
Named for former VSU all-America and former Atlanta Falcon all-pro linebacker
Jessie Tuggle, whose $25,000 gift in 1992 endowed a football scholarship, the
complex is a busy place year-round as various teams are put through a vigorous
off-season program by strength and conditioning coaches.
Doscher, who joined the Blazer athletic family in 1996, received his
undergraduate degree from Springfield College and his master’s degree from
Mississippi State University. He gained experience as an intern at Boston College
and an assistant at Nevada-Las Vegas and Mississippi State. He stays on the
cutting edge of strength and conditioning techniques, attending clinics throughout
the country both as a presenter and participant and has been honored by the
National Strength and Conditioning Association for his efforts and dedication.
Doscher is married, and he and his wife Teresa have two children, Dustin,
10, and Cassie, 8.

September 19 Š A.U. Williams Field Š Arkadelphia, Ark.
Game 4
Valdosta State 35, West Alabama 6
September 26 Š Bazemore-Hyder Stadium Š Valdosta, Ga.
Ouachita Baptist compiled 502 yards of total offense as the Tigers defeated the
Valdosta State 24-14 ... The OBU victory marked the first time the Tigers had defeated
Valdosta State ... Keldrick Johnson ran for 144 yards in the game, snapping a streak of
20 straight games in which an opposing running back had not reached triple digits against
VSU ... Meanwhile, Jeremy Young caught 13 passes for 261 yards and two touchdowns
... He scored on passes of 56 and 60 yards ... After Jason Fowler kicked a 35-yard first
quarter field goal and seen a 33-yard attempt blocked by the Blazers, Ronnye Nelson
gave VSU its only lead of the game on a three-yard touchdown run in the second quarter ...
The Tigers responded just two and a half minutes later when Johnson scored on a 45-yard
run for a 10-7 Ouachita Baptist halftime lead ... Young scored his 56-yard reception in the
third while Kody Case caught a 10-yard pass from Kellen Lewis in the fourth quarter
to move VSU to within three points ... However, 90 seconds later Cranor hit Young and
the receiver went 60 yards untouched to seal the victory ... Valdosta State threatened
in the closing seconds, but saw Lewis tackled on the OBU two yard line as time expired
... The 502 yards of total offense marked the most surrendered by the Blazer defense
since Southern Arkansas tallied 619 on October 29, 2005 ... Meanwhile, Lewis’ 53 pass
attempts in the contest were the most by a Blazer since Barrett Wilkes attempted 54
passes against Harding on September 17, 2005 ... Seven different Blazers caught a pass
in the game, led by freshman Gerald Ford and Case, a sophomore, who caught five each
... Larry Dean led the Blazers in tackles for the third time in as many games as he tallied
11 total, including 1.5 for loss.
Valdosta State compiled 488 yards of total offense as the Blazers defeated West Alabama 35-6 ... VSU tallied 413 yards through the air, including 306 by starting quarterback
Kellen Lewis who completed 27-of-37 passes, including one touchdown ... Lewis also
rushed for two first half touchdowns, as did Ronnye Nelson ... The Blazers marched 69
yards on 10 plays on their first drive of the game, scoring on Nelson’s 2-yard run ... After
Rashad Etheridge blocked a first quarter Brock Sharp punt, Lewis scored on a two-yard
run and added a one-yard jaunt five minutes into the second quarter ... Nelson gave VSU a
28-0 lead with a seven-yard run less than four minutes to go in the first half ... Valdosta
State tallied three turnovers in the game, matching its season total through its first three
games ... Cedric Jones caught 10 passes, the first Blazer to tally double-digit recpetions
since Jones did so in the Blazers’ 2007 national championship game victory, for 90 yards
and a 27-yard third quarter touchdown ... The VSU defense stopped the Tigers inside the
end zone twice in the fourth quarter before allowing West Alabama a five-yard Roosevelt
Ross touchdown with a minute and forty seconds to go in the game ... The UWA score
was set up by a David Arnold fumble, which was returned by Tavarus Finley to the VSU
10 ... Arnold led the rushing game with 52 yards on eight carries while R.J. Bastone
caught seven passes for 93 yards, including a 41-yard diving catch in the third quarter ...
Valdosta State was hampered by 13 penalties for 85 yards, but owned a 31:07 to 28:53
advantage in time of possession ... The Blazer defense also tallied three sacks on the day,
one more than it had totalled on the season entering the game.

VALDOSTA STATE FOOTBALL
VALDOSTA STATE AND THE HARLON HILL TROPHY
Valdosta State football has played a large role in the selection of the Division II
player-of-the-year, who receives the coveted Harlon Hill Trophy during festivities held
in conjunction with the national championship game in early December each year. The
trophy is named after former Florence State Teacher’s College (now University of North
Alabama) wide receiver Harlon Hill, who went on to start for the Chicago Bears in the
NFL.
In 1994, Chris Hatcher won the Hill trophy by the second largest vote margin in the
17-year history of the award. Hatcher won the award after throwing for 4,076 yards
and 55 touchdowns, against just 10 interceptions, while completing 367 of 508 passes.
Hatcher led Division II in passing efficiency during the regular season and directed VSU to
its first Division II post-season appearance.
Two years later, Lance Funderburk, his successor as Blazer quarterback, was runnerup for the prestigious honor. Funderburk completed 342 of 532 passes on the season,
a .643 completion percentage, and threw 38 touchdowns while being intercepted 14
times. His 4,226 yards passing on the year are both a Valdosta State and Gulf South
Conference record.
In 2000, then junior quarterback Dusty Bonner was a landslide winner of the award,
making Valdosta State one of only three schools to boast multiple winners. Bonner directed VSU to a 10-2 mark on the year while completing 351 of 488 passes. He tied
Hatcher’s Blazer and Gulf South Conference mark of 55 touchdown passes, against just
eight interceptions, and tallied 4,126 yards.
In 2001, Bonner took home the gold once again, becoming only the second player
in the history of the award to win it back-to-back. Bonner completed 298 of his 425
passing attempts for 4,037, becoming the first player in VSU history to throw more than
4,000 yards in back-to-back years. The senior threw 52 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while completing 70.1% of his passes.

GRAND VALLEY STATE 31, VALDOSTA STATE 24
BRALY STADIUM Š FLORENCE, ALA.
DECEMBER 14, 2002
FLORENCE, Ala. - In a battle of unbeaten teams, Grand Valley State stopped a
Valdosta State comeback bid with a touchdown with only 64 seconds remaining to defeat the Blazers 31-24 in the NCAA Division II National Championship game in Braly
Stadium.
The Lakers jumped out to a 17-3 lead in the first half while passing for 190 yards in
the half. After forcing a pair of punts on GVSU’s first two possessions, Valdosta State
got on the board first after marching 89 yards on eight plays. The Blazers took over the
ball on their own two yard line, but quickly got out of the shadow of the goal posts as
Aaron Jenkins broke a 41-yard run on second down. Two plays later Bama Adams hit
Tyrone Jordan for 42 yards, but the drive would stall, leading to a Will Rhody 26-yard
field goal.
Grand Valley State quickly answered as it took over on its own 42 before getting a
49-yard pass completion on first down. A play later, Reggie Spearmon found the end zone
for a 7-3 Laker lead.
GVSU again went to the air for its next score as it picked up 54 yards for a touchdown on a third-and-10 play and added a 38-yard field goal on its first drive of the second
quarter to go up 17-3. VSU responded with a 27-yard field goal from Rhody 34 seconds
before the half to establish a 17-6 Laker lead at the break.
Grand Valley State made it 24-6, on a 67-yard completion, on its first drive of the
third quarter before Valdosta State began its comeback bid. Jenkins scored from seven
yards out to cut the deficit to just 11 points with 3:51 remaining in the third quarter
before Rhody added his third field goal of the game, a 43-yard try, with 3:30 to go in the
game.
The ensuing kickoff was fielded at the GVSU six yard line, but the Blazer coverage
squad dropped kick returner Brent Lesniak for a three yard loss to pin the Lakers deep in
their own territory. After an incomplete pass, Grand Valley State quarterback Curt Anes
fumbled the ball in the end zone and VSU defensive end Tim Thompson fell on the loose
ball for a touchdown. Blazer quarterback Buster Faulkner promptly found C.J. Lofton
alone in the end zone for a two-point conversion, knotting the game at 24-24 with 3:09
remaining in the contest.
However, the Lakers would recover as they returned the ensuing kickoff 30 yards
before handing the ball to Anes. The Laker quarterback promptly completed five-of-six
passes, all to David Kircus, for 62 yards while Spearmon picked up six more on the
ground. The winning score came with 64 seconds remaining in the contest as Anes and
Kircus, who established a title game record with 270 yards receiving, hooked up from 10
yards out while the GVSU defense sealed the victory with an interception on the ensuing
drive.

DECEMBER 11, 2004
FLORENCE, Ala. - Valdosta State used a ground control offense and an opportunistic defense to defeat Pittsburg State 36-31 in Braly Stadium to earn the school’s first
NCAA Division II Football National Championship.
The Gorillas jumped on the scoreboard quickly as they intercepted a pass and returned it 32 yards for a score just 56 seconds into the contest. PSU pushed its lead to
14-0 seven minutes later as it scored on a Jermaine Carpenter 10-yard reception.
VSU used a turnover of its own to tally its first points of the game as Terrence Bell

After a Gorilla field goal, Walker capped off a 9-play, 69-yard drive with a four-yard
run to move the Blazers to within three points. The Valdosta State defense again made its
presence felt as Tim Thompson sacked PSU quarterback Neal Philpot, who fumbled the
ball on the play. Thompson recovered the fumble at the VSU 45 yard line with 47 seconds

A safety less than two minutes into the second half gave Valdosta State its first lead

BRALY STADIUM Š FLORENCE, ALA.
DECEMBER 15, 2007
FLORENCE, Ala. - The “Cardiac Kids” pulled off their fourth straight second half
come-from-behind victory as Valdosta State defeated Northwest Missouri State 25-20 in
Braly Stadium for the school’s second NCAA Division II National Championship.
The Blazers scored the winning touchdown with just 22 seconds remaining in the
contest when Michael Terry plunged in from one yard out to cap off an eight-play, 37yard drive. VSU took over in Bearcat territory after an NWMS punt traveled just 26 yards
before being downed. Valdosta State quarterback Willie Copeland promptly completed
three straight passes for 19 yards and, after a five-yard gain on the ground by Rashawn
Robinson, connected with Scott Palmer for an eight-yard pick-up to the Northwest Missouri State five yard line. Terry took over from there, picking up four yards to establish
a first-and-goal situation before being stopped for no gain on the next play. The Bearcats
again appeared to stop Terry on second-and-goal, but the junior bounced out of the middle
of the pile and slanted left to cross the goal line.
The Bearcats used a pair of second quarter touchdowns, the first on an interception
return and the second coming just 21 seconds before the half, to build a 14-3 advantage
heading into the intermission.
Clay Callaway caught a seven-yard pass from Copeland in the third quarter to cut the
deficit to 14-10 while Zach Parker and Ronnye Nelson hooked up for a 14-yard scoring
strike in the fourth to briefly give VSU the lead.
However, NWMS responded by returning the ensuing kick-off 34 yards and scored
three plays later on a Xavier Omon two-yard dive to regain the advantage. The extra point
attempt was blocked and scooped up by Valdosta State’s Roger King, who returned the
ball 86 yards for a two-point defensive point-after-attempt.
The Blazers sealed the victory on the first play from scrimmage following the Terry
touchdown as Bearcat quarterback Joel Osborn was hit as he released a pass. The fluttering ball was intercepted by Blazer William Montford, allowing Copeland to take a knee
to end the contest.
The VSU defense held Northwest Missouri State to just 235 total yards in the contest, including just 87 on the ground. Omon, who was averaging 236 yards a game in
his three previous play-off contests, was limited to just 63 yards, on 27 carries, in the
game.
Meanwhile, Valdosta State tallied 305 yards in the contest, including 271 through
the air. Blazer star wideout Cedric Jones caught 10 passes for 95 yards while Calloway
finished the contest with five receptions and 61 yards.
